Statement from LNP Leader Deb Frecklington: LNP Shadow Minister changes


Trevor Watts, the Member for Toowoomba North, informed me he was fined today for breaching the coronavirus restrictions relating to a gathering that occurred on Saturday.

I expect the highest standards from my team, especially my Shadow Ministers.

I have accepted the Member for Toowoomba North’s resignation as the Shadow Minister for Police and Counter Terrorism and Shadow Minister for Corrective Services.

Trevor is more determined than ever to represent his local community as the LNP’s Member for Toowoomba North.

I want to thank Trevor for his Shadow Ministerial service and his honesty in advising me of this issue.

I have appointed Dan Purdie, the Member for Ninderry, as Shadow Minister for Police and Counter Terrorism and Shadow Minister for Corrective Services.

Dan served in the Queensland Police Service for more than 20 years working as a detective in the Drug Squad, the Covert Unit, the Australian Crime Commission and the Homicide Squad.

For almost a decade Dan worked in the Child Protection and Investigation Unit dealing with children, families and vulnerable Queenslanders.

Since being elected in 2017 Dan has campaigned strongly against Labor’s soft-on-crime approach and in support of the LNP’s sex offender register and tough child killer laws.

Dan has also served as the Shadow Assistant Minister for Treasury.

I have also appointed Marty Hunt, the Member for Nicklin, to the role of Shadow Assistant Minister for Treasury.

Marty is passionate about small businesses, which are the backbone of the Queensland economy creating local jobs.

Marty served in the Queensland Police Service for almost 30 years before being elected to Parliament in 2017.  

I am determined to see the Queensland economy restarted as soon as possible and to do that everyone needs to follow the coronavirus directions.
